On Monday, November 4, the Hospitality Suites were renamed the C. Waitman Taylor, Jr. Hospitality Suites.

The hospitality suites embody Owensboro Health’s mission to heal the sick and improve the health of the communities we serve. While we do not provide traditional medical care here in this suites, we do provide tremendous compassion and care to all who stay here.


Waitman Taylor knew how important these suites would be to those who would come to our hospital for care. He had a vision and he helped to make them a reality for our patients and their families.

Happy attendees

Since they opened in August 2013, the suites have served 4,056 families, giving them the comforts of home while enabling them to be at the bedside with their loved ones.

Greg Strahan said in the unveiling, “When Waitman passed away earlier this year, we knew we wanted to recognize his vision and honor his contributions to Owensboro Health. I cannot think of a more fitting way to honor his legacy, than what we are doing here today.”
